. >> they do. but verizon was working. so you could get high speed internet. >> that defeats the purpose, you go to the hotel and it has no power. what floor were you on? >> 14th floor. but the operators did operate. i did walk up and down a couple times, but -- they had backup power. >> don't trust the backup power. >> and we had a fire alarm at 1:00 a.m., 12:30. so a long evening. >> hearing the trees all around and you don't know when one is -- last time one hit my house. >> i know. >> you worry about all the people that are out there. >> you worry about where you park your car. first i had them huddled in front toying and i'm like why am i putting them right next to each other? so then i spread them out. >> anyway, it is a situation we are still waiting to see how much damage is out there waiting for first light this morning to get a better assessment of things. when we come back -- >> did you hear what the hair tweeted? joe kernen's hair? joe kernen's hair one, sandy zero. should i retweet that? i might retweet that. in your case, you just don't shower. >> let's be honest. there was no p
the roll out. my blackberry, we saw verizon work fine in lower manhattan. not as good for my iphone, which uses up more bandwidth. one of the biggest issues post sandy is finding gasoline. lines in new york and new jersey are sometimes more than 100 cars deep. mary thompson is live at one of those. >> we're here in ridgefield, new jersey. if you were entering this rest stop, anyone who drives along the turnpike know this is one. if you enter from the north, you'll wait in line maybe 25 minutes. from the south, your wait could be longer. clearance thomas told us he waited for two hours. >> it's been horrible. lines long everywhere. ran out of gas once. survived it. got back on the road. then got up early this morning, like 7:00, get over there to get gas. >> the lines began forming in new jersey and on long island yesterday. a lot of gas stations in these areas aren't open because they don't have electricity and some have run out of gasoline though some are still selling diesel fuel. the supply chain disrupted, too, making a bad situation worse. a number of terminals here in the new jersey,
